Cameroon: Only limited progress on human rights despite promises: Amnesty International Submission to the UN Universal Periodic Review, April-May 2013

By Amnesty International, , Index number: AFR 17/002/2012

In this submission, Amnesty International raises concerns about the lack of implementation of recommendations supported by the government of Cameroon in its first review in 2009. Progress has been negligible on nearly all issues. The organization is also concerned about current violations of the rights to freedom of expression and association, the death penalty, and impunity for human rights abuses. Particularly at risk are human rights defenders, government critics, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) individuals, and others engaged in peaceful political activities.
